Management are not genuinely engaging with the issues and concerns NTEU members have raised at the bargaining table. During negotiations for the Academic Staff Enterprise Agreement, NTEU has been tabling flagship claims, arguing for them and indicating where we would be prepared to compromise in the interests of reaching agreement. Improvements members are seeking in the new Enterprise Agreement include:
- Updated and more realistic workload model components and improved regulation of workloads.
- Better provisions on Indigenous employment to address Macquarie’s poor record in this regard.
- Expanded career entry opportunities and better job security for early career academics.
- Reduction of casualisation.
- Better access to OSP.
- Provisions to assist staff dealing with domestic violence.
- Greater staff participation in decision-making, better consultation processes and stronger appeal rights.
It is now over 5 months since we served our first log of claims, but little progress has been made. We must persuade management to show members due respect by prioritising bargaining and matching the NTEU’s effort to draft clauses in serious pursuit of settlement.
We think it is time NTEU members had the option of taking action to help us persuade management to take bargaining seriously. We must insist they prioritise bargaining in order to come to an agreement that respects and values staff and the work we do to deliver high quality education, by providing improved working conditions at Macquarie.
